As I've mentioned before, I LOVE Nars! I always get so excited when I start seeing info on the new collections. Nars has new collections ever season, but they are relatively small (compared to Mac at least).
From the pictures I've seen I will most definitely be getting the blush, the purple eyeshadow single, both eyeshadow duos, and the lipgloss. In my experience, Nars eyeshadow duos are sheerer than the singles, which I prefer. Some of the singles lately have been chalky, and hard to blend. I will be getting the purple anyway just because I LOVE purple! The rest I will have to see in person before I can decide!
The Nars 2010 Fall Collection will be available on July 15 online, and in August in stores.
(Usually its available at department stores a few weeks before it hits Sephora, so it wouldn't be available at Sephora until mid to late August)
Here's pictures and descriptions of the collection!
Douceur Blush ($26.00)-soft pink brown
A soft pink-brown hue that lightly imparts a honeyed brown kiss of innocence on cheeks. Unique to the Fall 2010 collection, the powder is lightly etched with the NARS logo. Use to contour from the apple of the cheek upward; warm forehead, jaw line and nose.
Daphne Eyeshadow ($23.00)– royal purple
Style icon. Designer. Model. Heiress of haute couture. Named after Daphne Guinness herself—François Nars’ inimitable muse—this hypnotizing matte, deep-violet single eyeshadow exudes excitement. Apply liberally across the lid up to the brow, blending outward. Head-turning.
Mangrove Eyeshadow ($23.00) (Limited Edition)– rich lemon yellow -green
The magnificence of this tropical tree, captured in the softest, mellow yellow laced with lime. Richly pigmented and crease-resistant, use this single eyeshadow to highlight the inner corner of the eye, as a bright base shade for the lid or to diffuse a deeper shade by sweeping it into the bridge.
Coconut Grove Eyeshadow ($23.00)– chocolate brown
Grooving in the Grove—Miami’s magical neighborhood on Biscayne Bay—has attracted musicians, artists, and writers for decades. Dense, dramatic, and daring, this dark chocolate-cum-taupe confection increases depth on the lid and doubles as a lash liner when used wet.
Rouge Basque Lipstick ($24.00) (Limited Edition)– a quintessential red
Inspired by the inside cover of a book from the famed French countryside, François Nars envisioned the quintessential red from the Basque region. The result is lipstick with a luminous satin finish. It is as deeply pigmented as the region’s history and as bold as the wine for which the area is known. Pair with NARS pencils, or apply with a NARS lip brush.
Strawberry Fields Lip Gloss ($24.00) (Limited Edition) strawberry purple shade
Imagine juicy, mouthwatering strawberries, just picked. Then delight in the serious, yet sexy shine of this bright pink confection. Worn alone or over NARS lip products, the gloss’ Vitamin-E enriched formula seals in moisture. Lips feel supple and hydrated.
Palladium Soft Touch Shadow Pencil ($24.00) (Limited Edition)
Once the NYC hot-spot, characterized by glamour, glitz, and decadence. This sparkling turquoise soft touch shadow pencil rocks with all the vibrancy and sex appeal of its namesake. Layer it with other NARS eye products—or go it alone—to line, accent, highlight or illuminate unforgettable eyes.
Tzarine Eyeshadow Duo ($32.00)(Russia inspired) – bright yellow and bold gold gray
Love, sex and power. Russia’s empresses had it all. Inspired by royalty, the eyeshadow duo pairs the majesty of platinum gold infused with silver reflections with a bold, steel grey. Swipe and shadow along the upper lid or smudge along the lower. Positively regal.
Rajasthan Eyeshadow Duo ($32.00) Limited Edition(Indian inspired) – golden light and cool blue ink
Sacred temples and scorching deserts. Bengalese tigers and Bagaru prints. India’s largest state fascinates and tantalizes. Like its namesake, the Rajasthan Eyeshadow duo is an exotic palette, playing glazed almond against cool charcoal. Worn solo, blended or layered, the look signals drama.
